The Mega Sensor Shield v.2 allows you to hook up the TinkerKit SENSORS and ACTUATORS directly to the Arduino Mega or Mega 2560 or Mega ADK, without the use of the breadboard.
It has 22 standard TinkeKit 3pin connectors. The 10 labeled I0 through I9 are Analog Inputs. The ones labeled O0 through O5 are Analog Outputs connected to the PWM capable outputs of the Arduino Board (it is possible to change these to Digital Inputs, in which case they will report either HIGH or LOW, but nothing in between).
On a Standard Arduino Mega 2560 board the pins are:
Pin 11 on the Arduino Mega is O0 on the shield.
Pin 10 on the Arduino Mega is O1 on the shield.
Pin 9 on the Arduino Mega is O2 on the shield.
Pin 6 on the Arduino Mega is O3 on the shield.
Pin 5 on the Arduino Mega is O4 on the shield.
Pin 3 on the Arduino Mega is O5 on the shield.
The one labeled IO (D13, D12, D8, D7, D4, D2) are Input / Output pins capable of PWM, digitalRead and digitalWrite. They correspond to Digital 13, 12, 8, 7, 4, 2.
Module description: A green LED signals that the shield is correctly powered.
The 4pin TWI socket allows communication to any device supporting the I2C protocol through the Wire library on Arduino. 5V and Ground are provided on the socket.
4 4pin SERIAL socket allows the board to communicate with other devices that support serial communication. 5V and Ground are provided on the socket for your convenience.
We use barrel jacks a lot around here and sometimes we need to pop a switch into the mix. That usually means hacking up a perfectly good barrel jack extension cable, but the whole point of using the barrel jacks was so that we wouldn\'t have to hack things apart... Well, we found a solution: The Barrel Jack Power Switch.
These headers are made to work with the Arduino Uno R3, Leonardo and new Arduino boards going forward. They are the perfect height for clearing the USB-B connector and great for stacking multiple shields. This kit includes 4 headers (1 8-pin, 1 10-pin and 2 6-pin), enough to connect a shield to an Arduino board. These are the same headers we use in our...
To facilitate the use of Raspberry Pi and screen module to work together, we specifically developed a simple adapter board and customized a batch of 26-pin (2X13) cable . Simply insert the screen module into the adapter board, then connect the board and Raspberry Pi plate with cable, thus the hardware connection is done, saving the trouble of...
Single row of 30-holes, female header with swiss round machined pins. These units have very high quality round pins to accept and retain machine pin headers much better. Can be cut to size with a pair of wire-cutters. Standard .1" spacing. We use them extensively in the Olimex development boards. They mate very well with break away headers.
This is a simple board that no one really needs but it\'sure comes in handy. If you\'ve ever tried to hook up an FTDI to something only to realize you need to swap the TX and RX, maybe you could use this board. Sure, you can grab some jumper wires and make your own, but this little crossover board makes it much easier.
